Same Old Sandwich? Go International with Mexican Cemitas
Getting sick of the same old peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Try adding some international flavor to your repertoire with a cemita, a Mexican sandwich that's typically served as street food.
Watch our video to learn the art of cemita-making from the masters. Jesus and Irma Verdejo, owners of New York's Tulcingo Del Vallo, demonstrate how to make their famous Cemita al Pastor. It features a combination of tender roast pork, pineapple, avocado, refried beans, Oaxaca cheese and a secret chipotle sauce on a sesame-seed bun.
Can't figure out what Jesus and Irma put in their secret sauce? Try our recipe for Chipotle Tomato Sauce.
